Outreach and Community Involvement
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Richmond Volleyball Club has a goal to provide enrichment to our community outreach through the sport of volleyball. Not only do we believe that supporting different causes and events makes our community stronger, but it also makes us a better volleyball club.
If you or your organization would like to partner with Richmond Volleyball Club in an outreach event, please email email@example.com.
Richmond Volleyball Club has been partnering with both Richmond and Henrico Police Athletic Leagues (PAL) since 2015. RVC has hosted multiple summer and spring break camps for both Richmond and Henrico PAL. Through our partnership we have been able to introduce hundreds of kids to the sport of volleyball.
For more than 10 years Richmond Volleyball Club has been a proud supporter of the Special Olympics. Joining their movement built on inclusion, where every person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. Working with Special Olympics Virginia, RVC offers space and support for Special Olympic Athletes to learn and practice during their season. RVC also hosts their regional volleyball tournament each fall.
In 2019, 86 RVC members volunteered their time over the course or 10 weeks. They provided a safe and fun environment for the players to learn and grow while playing volleyball.
Richmond Volleyball Club is proud to support this annual event to raise money for the American Cancer Society held in December.
This event was first held in 1997, in honor of RVC player Karen Shortall. Karen’s life was cut short by cancer at age 27. Each year, in her honor, we hold this event to fight back the only way we know how — with volleyball. In 2019, 35 teams participate with $2,141 raised for the American Cancer Society.
